    Correct, Barcelona Red was first introduced in 09'
    3M exterior mounting tape - provided the emblem does not have studs to bolt through the mesh..
    This is what I use to attach the letters on the "raptor" style grill.

    Yup.

    We collaborated on them. I source them from Jerry as well.

    Have you considered selling the grill and mesh as a kit for the DIY? For owners who don't want to carve their stock grill but still want to give it a shot?

    BTW, I did buy my pre-cut thin-lip mesh from Craig and cut my own grill. His pre-cut made the job VERY easy to do and he shipped it very fast. And I really appreciate it!

    Spare grills are readily available on the Internet from several reputable suppliers.

    I do offer just the mesh precut and ready to install and also offer a powder coating service for that mesh.

    I am all about helping folks with D I Y. :D

    I have read over your thread for the satoshi grills and still have a couple of questions;

    If I just order the metal do you give instuctions for instalation?
    I have seen your two videos but im am still unsure of where the mesh would go? in perspective to the grill pieces you pull apart
    Is the thin lip grill a possible diy project
    And how long does it take to recieve once ordered, i see the long list but I am unsure of when it was updated

    thanks for your time

    Please read the Satoshi 101 thread in my Subform.
    That should answer all of your questions.
    Usually ship mesh out within a couple of days unless it needs to be powder coated then you have to wait until I have a batch going in for powder coat. :eek:
    The Build list is only for full grills not for mesh by itself.
    I won't be taking any mesh orders for the next week or two as I'm on vacation.
    Thank you,

    Where can I get a grill with "TOYOTA" spelled out on it? I have seen a couple on here, but I have not been able to figure out where they get them. Thanks for any help!

    I'm building my own out of metal at my fab shop I work at. Will I need to make brackets for it to slide into stock brackets, or is it just holes drilled into it ?
